ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- Iowa has struggled on the road this season. On Saturday the Hawkeyes lost to Big Ten bottom-feeder Minnesota, 22-21, in Minneapolis.

Fortunately for Iowa, it plays Michigan in Iowa City, Iowa, this weekend. However, if the Hawkeyes play like they did against the Golden Gophers, it could be a long day for them. To be fair, Michigan coach Brady Hoke emphasized Monday that the Hawkeyes' latest game is more of an aberration from what they've seen this season from them.
